Terrorists plan to attack Lagos, Oyo, Ogun — they set up camps in the forests

Gani Adams, the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, says he received an intelligence report that terrorists have settled in the forests of Osun, Oyo and Ogun states.

In a statement released Sunday by Kehinde Aderemi, his special media assistant, Adams said the terrorists were seen with a large cache of ammunition.

He called on southwest governors to strengthen the operations of the southwest security network, codenamed Amotekun.

“Now that Abuja has seemingly lost the battle against the terrorists, the South West region is the next target of these hope destroyers,” the statement said.

“The information reaching me today is that the terrorists are between Osu Forest and Ile Ife, Osun State, fully armed with various ammunition and they are currently in the forest between Abeokuta and Ibadan, planning to attack us in the southwest.

“This is information we must act upon in order to avert a possible calamity. The Yoruba are not cowards. So let everyone in the South West be vigilant and careful to control this scourge of insecurity that already plagues Nigeria.

“We will never allow them to destroy our land. Therefore, we urge the six governors of the southwestern states to hold an emergency security meeting with stakeholders in the region to address the impending implosion.

“We are aware of their strike plans in Lagos, Ibadan, Oyo State and Abeokuta in Ogun State, however, I implore all South West Governors to recruit a structure of local security services in their various local governments.”

The Aare Ona Kakanfo said he was ready to offer help if needed to any of the southwestern governors.

He called on President Muhammadu Buhari to redeem his image and use his power to establish the state police before leaving office.

“The situation of insecurity has reached its climax with the threat of these terrorists to kidnap the president, governors and lawmakers,” he said.

“Nigeria is falling apart because it seems there is no government in the country. It seems that this administration has decided to force Nigerians to seek self-help.

“The president in office has about 10 months left. It’s time to redeem his image. President Buhari can use his executive powers to enable the immediate establishment of a state police with a mandate to root out all terrorists stationed in strategic locations in the country.
